First, thanks for looking!

Since LOML and I are both woodworkers, we have split the shop right down the middle. I try to keep the workflow in my areas easy for the way I work, and LOML does her thing in her areas :-) .

From left to right: Router table, lumber rack, band saw, sanders, table saw, and the jointer half-hidden beyond the table saw extension table:

My main work area

Looking back over the workbench toward the table saw area, and the shop entrance at the far corner:

From bench toward entrance

This is LOML’s work area: The carving table/area, then turning area, to router table area:

LOLMs work area

Of course, there IS more. You will find the rest of the story about our shop at my blog. Thanks for looking!

Great shop Al. Is your LOML a member yet?

Al, this is one fine shop. Thanks for sharing. It’s nice your LOML has interests that parallel your own.
St. Joseph is right down I-29, and is a great little town!

Wayne, LOML is not a member. She has pretty much stopped browsing the WW forums, as she stays busy with other stuff, plus the granddaughters.

Douglas, Thanks! We love working together in the shop – I am a pretty lucky guy, for sure.

Hi Al,

This is a gorgeous shop. You have plenty of room and a nice set of tools. I just hope the LOML doesn’t get into YOUR wood stash. :) But if she is anything like my wife she has her stuff and when she needs something (especially with regards to her bank account) then my stuff is fair game as well.

Thanks for the post.

Thanks, Scott!

I missed your post, but I am glad I found it today.

Yes, LOML is alsways very nice about asking for anything she needs, and I gladly get it for her; but she also can get it any time she wants it! She normally does not consume as much on her projects as my projects use ;-) , so it balances out very well.
